Quotes from Guido Crego:

Argentina is actually a pretty interesting place for tech, although the internal market is small, a lot of successful companies in Latin Americas are started from Argentina.

The reality is when it comes to the split per operating system, it changes a lot depending on the region mostly because, as you may know, different markets and different countries in the world will have different penetration of operating systems. In places like Latin America they are really big on Android and iOS is not that big.

The reality is we are all learning, advertisers are learning how to do it, DSPs are learning how to do it and MMPs are learning how to do it (work with SKADnetwork efficiently)
